Sunday Workshop

Well, today was my last planned class this year at The Paperlane. This was a beginner Copic Colouring class, with a project to make. There were five lovely ladies with me today (Mari, June, Bev, Susan and Julie - Hi Ladies!!). Today was a bit of a giggle, as once we got through the colouring to the project things got a bit hectic! Mental note to many layers do you need on a project???? Lol!
Still, here it is - this is the sample for the session today. I used a gorgeous new stamp - this is little Miss 'Candy Canes'. She is a Saturated Canary rubber stamp, which is SO good - I can distress ink these lovelies to my heart's content - although this is Copic'd! Caz has them in stock - but they are not online! We made a gift card pouch - I love making these, as a gift card never looks much floating around a normal card, but this makes it more of a gift I think.
 The Gift Card Pouch
 The inside - both of the panels can be removed to store gift cards, notes or money.
 Close up detail of the colouring - and the sparkles!
Here is the project laid down so you can see the dimension.
Project ingredients:
Stamp: Saturated Canary - Candy Canes, Hero Arts Mixed Christmas Messages (not visible in photos)
Papers: Teresa Collins' Christmas Cottage 6x6 pad, and matching Washi tape
Dies: Memory Box Frostyville - Wreath & Border
Embellies: Buttons, Star Dust Stickles, Waco Pearl Pen, Organza Ribbon
And ladies...just for you.....
Copics used:
Skin: E000, E00, E11 and R20
Hair: E50, E51, E33, E37, E47, E57 and a tiny touch of E59!
Dress: G85, G82 and 0 palette blended
Bag: E50, E51 and E53
Candy Canes: R59, R29, R27 and W1, W3
 So, thank you ladies! I had a lovely day, and hope to see you all soon! Kx

new class!

Yeay!!! We have Sarah back for a fun day of Christmas crafting!!!!
Dont miss out, Saturday 13th october, 10 to 4pm. £25.00.

Very apt for today's weather its been rather blustery.
Just used my copic markers to colour this image.

Hair : E29,E25,E21
Dress : V91,V95,BG000,B00,V000,R000

Flower: V000,G82
Eyes: G82
Outline of image :C0,C1,C2,C3
I also added glitter but camera does not show up how pretty and twinkling the image truly is.
For the embellishments to this card it was just simply lace and ribbon scraps, Buttons and some pearl trim a few frosted plastic flowers dotted in as well.
Hoped you enjoyed today's card.
Thank you for visiting  blog.

Distressing Bank Holiday!

Hello One and All! Thanks for visiting!

Please don't get upset by the title - even though it has been raining most of the weekend so far, we have had a lovely weekend at The Paperlane! Today was a workshop on how to use Distress Inks to colour character stamps. The project that we made was a small gift bag - all of the ingredients for the project are listed below.
Here is a picture of the fabulous projects that were made in the workshop today...
PROJECT INGREDIENTS (all stocked at The Paperlane):
In the Bag Die (Tim Holtz)
Pocket Gift Tag (Memory Box)
Character Stamps (Magnolia)
Fontiments: Birthday Sentiment Stamps (Uniko Studio)
Border and Ribbon Punches (Martha Stewart)
Distress Inks (Ranger Inc)
Vintage Seam Binding (Paperlane by the metre)
All of the images were coloured with Distress Inks, and we had great fun playing with the technique - they all concentrated so much it was silent at times! I thought they had all gone home ;-) 
Thanks for a lovely day ladies! Time flies so fast when we are having fun! Look forward to seeing you all again soon! X
UPDATE: For everyone who is waiting for the Saturated Canary stamps to arrive from America - they are on their way! We will let you know straight away via the blog, Facebook and Twitter when they are here! You could always drop in the store or email if there are any that you would like saving!
Ta Ta for Now! :-)

Cute Bella

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mum's in the UK!

A while back I bought this cute Wild Rose Studio Bella stamp from The Paperlane & hadn't found time to ink & colour her in! So I found some time yesterday to make this card ...

Looks like I NEED a lot more practice with my Copic markers!! I kept the card really CAS as to not take the focus off the lovely image. 

Hope you all have a lovely day & if you likey Bella why not pop down to The Paperlane shop to buy one! LOL! Caz has lots of other cute Bella stamps along with papers & other crafty goodies!! 

Thanks for stopping by!
